WWDC 2022: Apple presents Metal 3

Apple has updated its Metal API with a third version full of new features to better take advantage of Apple Silicon chips. Game graphics will be improved and load times minimized thanks to a new API providing a more direct path between storage and GPU. This will allow games to access resources faster.

Apple explains that the new “MetalFX Upscaling” will allow developers to quickly calculate complex scenes thanks to the use of frames less resource intensive. Resolution scaling and antialiasing will then be applied to improve performance.

During the conference, Apple announced the arrival of two titles on Mac: Resident Evil Village and No Man’s Sky. It will also be available on iPad.
